BT FINANCIAL CORP. REPORTS RESULTS
BT FINANCIAL CORP. REPORTS RESULTS JOHNSTOWN, Pa., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- BT Financial Corp.
(NASDAQ-NMS: BTFC) said today that its operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 1992, are excellent and reflect a strong commitment to the company's philosophy of providing its customers with the best in banking services.
The corporation had aggressively pursued its sales and market-driven strategy to achieve outstanding results. Consolidated net income for the quarter was $2,177,000 or $.73 per share, a 30.4 percent increase over the $1,669,000 or $.56 per share, earned in the previous year. Compared to the same period last year, total assets increased $90,969,000 or 11.6 percent to $876,438,000. Deposits were up $85,444,000 or 12.4 percent to $771,802,000, net loans rose $28,979,000 or 5.8 percent to $527,277,000, and shareholders' equity increased $5,584,000 or 9.0 percent to $67,825,000. A favorable impact on net income was received through the purchase, in the second half of 1991, of Peoples Federal Savings Bank and the Somerset office of Atlantic Financial Savings. Asset and deposit growth was assisted by these acquisitions. The flat loan demand continues to reflect a lower level of economic activity in BT Financial Corp.'s market region. Despite uncertainty over the direction of monetary policy and interest rates, net interest income for the quarter increased $1,880,000 or 22.8 percent from the previous year. Continued high asset quality supports these factors. For the second quarter, provision for loan losses was $637,000 compared to $273,000 for the previous year due primarily to the loans acquired through acquisitions. BT Financial Corp.'s management continues to carefully control all operating expenses and seize upon opportunities for improving non-interest income. BT Financial Corp. began installing new drive-up ATM units at its banking affiliates. Customer acceptance has been highly positive. The MasterCard and VISA credit card operations were centralized to enhance customer service and attain efficiencies in operational costs. This department is a vital link in providing each customer with a myriad of available consumer services through the corporation. BT Management Trust Co., BT Financial Corp.'s trust affiliate, continues to increase assets and fees generated as its business expands and prospers. Regulatory approval was received to merge Peoples Bank One, West Lebanon, Pa., into Johnstown Bank and Trust Co., effective with the close of business Aug. 14, 1992. Peoples Bank One has four banking offices with assets of approximately $18 million. Offices are located in West Lebanon, Elderton, North Washington and Duquesne, Pa.
